My Recipe for Happy Lobelia
A lot of people ask what the little blue flowers are. Others, who know, ask what the secret is, because they've bought and planted lobelia, only to have them look very straggly or even die. I only know that these are happy (1) in the windowboxes, (2) facing the morning sun, with (3) afternoon shade and (4) daily watering. I have a few at home that get afternoon sun and are not happy, whether in a container or in the ground. So that's my experience and all I can say about lobelia.
